Alison Sweeney Restraining Order Extended to 3 Years Against Internet Troll

7/26/2017 12:14 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former 'Biggest Loser' host Alison Sweeney just got permanent protection against a guy who she says has been harassing her nonstop ... for the next 3 years, at least.

A judge extended Alison's temporary restraining order against Jon Christopher LuVisi Wednesday after she came to court earlier this month claiming he'd been trolling her on social media endlessly for 9 months.

We broke the story ... LuVisi allegedly tried extorting Alison for thousands of dollars by saying he had photos of her genitals and would send them to her husband unless she paid up. She says he also started making threats after she blocked his multiple accounts.

LuVisi didn't show up to court Wednesday, nor did any of his lawyers. Didn't matter though -- a judge granted the 3-year extension under the original terms ... 1,000 ft away from Alison and her fam.

EXCLUSIVE

Bob Harper -- a fitness guru who's the host of "The Biggest Loser" -- suffered a heart attack that left him unconscious for 2 days.

The 51-year-old was taken to the hospital and says he woke up 2 days later. He was hospitalized for 8 days and is still in NYC -- he lives in L.A. -- because his doctors have not cleared him to fly.

He's doing a lot better and his exercise for the time being is limited to walking.

Bob -- a fitness nut -- says the heart attack is all genetics. His mom died from a heart attack.

'The Biggest Loser' Ex-NFL Lineman Says .. You Jacked My Logo!!!

6/6/2016 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"The Biggest Loser" needs to drop more than weight ... its new logo is a total rip-off, according to a new lawsuit filed by former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentley.

Earlier this year, the NBC show decided to drop its original tape measure logo for a new stylized "BL." Bentley, a former Pro-Bowler, says 'Loser' screwed up because he trademarked a very similar logo in 2013 for his O-Line Performance company.

Bentley says he sent a cease and desist letter, which was ignored ... so now he's suing NBC Universal and the producers for trademark infringement. He wants the logo changed, and a cut of the revenue 'Loser' made while using the new one.

Luckily for all involved, this will be handled by lawyers -- LeCharles goes 6'2", 300-plus pounds.
